Treyarch has included an option to install textures pack onto your PS3 in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
According to Black Ops 2 game design director David Vonderhaar, installing textures pack won’t enhance the game’s performance, but it does take off the constant stress on the Blu-ray drive.
“Black Ops 2 has an option to ‘Install Textures to HDD,’ he said, ‘When we explained to PS3 folks that installing to the HDD wouldn’t necessarily give us any significant performance gains, they explained back that the issue is they play so much it puts constant stress on the Blu-ray drive and wears them out. Roger that.”
He added that the hard drive space taken up by texture installation as “a non-trivial amount”, but didn’t provide specific numbers because “anything can, and does change during development.”
Black Ops 2 will be released on November 13, 2012 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
